My 4 month infant has small pink dot on his eyeball to the side of his cornea . Is this pink eye or just a burst blood vessel from crying?

Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
If this dot is present there right since birth then it might be due to an abnormal eye pigmentation. If it has appeared in past few days then the chances are that it is due to a burst blood vessel in the eye. The burst blood vessel spot usually resolves in one month without any residual mark.

I have a clear sack or raised blister like area on my eyeball It's confined to sclera and does not pass over cornea. It is causing discomfort, I have had no recent eye infection or injury but I do wear contact lenses. What is wrong and how do I treat this? I am 26y and healthy.

I have had shingles in my left eye cornea, and I take two drops of a steriod product to lessen flare-ups. I played some raquetball for a couple hours, and it seemed that I had a flare - up with the shingles. My eye was a bit blurry and I took a nap - and when I woke up it was a little better. My question is: Does strenous excerise cause a flare-up with shingles?
Thanks,
Don
